Hot Dogs

What's your favorite way to eat a hot dog? I think mine has to be with onion, mustard, chili and slaw. My husband calls it Carolina Style. Sometimes when we're in a hurry we use canned chili but that usually results in disappointment. It really is easy to make a quick chili for hot dogs or if you have a distinguished palate pour it over top of some fries. Some people even use it for Sloppy Joes.

Here's what you need:                                                                                      
1 pound of hamburger meat
1 cup ketchup
1 teaspoon vinegar                                                             
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
add a little Cayenne pepper if you like heat
1/2 cup water


1.) brown hamburger and drain fat
2.) add remaining ingredients to beef and simmer until heated through


  1. Is that just a regular bun??

  2. Yeah I get the buns from the bakery section of the store instead of the ones from the bread aisle. They are fresher and a lot of times bigger. But they are more airy and not so heavy.


THANKS for leaving a comment; it means a lot to me! I try my best to always reply here or through e-mail. It's so good to hear from you, take care!
